Sad Plight of the Famous City of Columbia. 'Constructive Total Loss" Indeed, Was In Bad Condition Starting. Had Al Rating. In the verdict of the official survey ors of the S. S. City of Columbia is affirmed the judgment of Capt. Milnor that the ship is a "constructive total loss," dating from the Hilo examina tion. Capt. Fuller, Capt. Campbell and Jas. Ly!e constituted the jury which has now made a return to Consul General Haywood. They find that it will cost $lu.(0u to repair the vessel to enable her to be taken to San Francisco with safety. Adding this $10,000 to the claim against the City of Columbia makes her a perfect example of the "constructive total loss," as interpreted by Capt. Milnor and the authorities in general every where. In other words, as she now lies, it will cost more to make here a good ship than she is worth. As the City of Columbia now lies in the harlKr here she is making an inch and a half of water an hour. This leak is in or about the propellor shaft sleeve and can be stopped only in a dock. It is recommended by the sur veyors that repair at this portion of the ship be undertaken in Honolulu. A noteworthy section of findings of the surveyors is expression of the opinion that she "shows weakness and was that way before she commenced this voyage." The vessel had been in spected at Seattle before her departure by the Government authorities and by the underwriters and had been given a rating of Al for five years. This fact makes a present of a somewhat bothersome situation, to the insurance people. Of what the vessel may have been before he took command of her, Capt. Milnor could not have had any personal knowledge till he made the inspection at Hilo. He was given his commission as master less than twenty-four hours before steaming for Hilo and Honolulu, being called from his place as captain of the fine steam er Arizona. When Capt. Milnor took charge the Columbia was of course about ready for sea. The surveyors, as is the custom of such men. speak frankly of what they find. They discover that in several places the works of the vessel hang by slender threads. This is true of not a little of the superstructure and there was decided weakness in the boiler fastenings. Under the libel of the-crew of the City of Columbia the ship is to be offered for sale next month at an up set price that will meet the total of the claims of the men. It is not likely that there will be any bidders here. Then the ship will be offered on the Coast. EDUCATION. Teachers Appointed and Truancy Discussed. The Doard of Education met yester day afternoon, Minister Cooper presid ing. A number of recommendations and applications for positions were re ceived by the Board, most of which were referred to the committee on teachers. The recommendation that a police officer at Olaa be made a truant officer also, and receive in addition to his income from the Government a shiall salary from the Educational De partment resulted in a somewhat ani mated discussion of truant officers in general. There seemed to be a common opinion that truant officers are derelict in their duties. The prosecution of some of the parents might have a good effect. This the officers fail in. A long report from the committee on teachers, recommending transfers and appointments was read by Professor Alexander. Most of the report was acted on affirmatively by the Board. Several teachers recently arrived from the States received positions, but those applicants of Island residence were pre- f erred. CIRCUIT COURT. Transactions Held in Probate and Other Matters. A. S.
